APRIL 17 - Entrepreneurial DNA
Learn how to become more entrepreneurial and grow your finances.

APRIL 24 - Stay on Target
Learn how to achieve your lifelong goals using sound investment strategies.
According to the Economic Policy Institute (EPI), average retirement savings for families between 56 and 61 is $163,577. That is nowhere close to how much they would actually need to be able to retire and meet their expenses for another 25-30 years. The first step to meeting your retirement goal is to have a basic understanding of how retirement planning works and what are the different components of investing. You don’t have to become a financial analyst but you at least have to understand what your advisor is saying. Knowledge is power; the more you know the better decisions you can make. “Stay on Target” will give you a broad understanding of retirement planning and investments.
